Don't let the shrine's name fool you. It's not only a shrine for the military personnel but also civilians who sacrificed their lives. There's a changing of the guards, which is a spectacle. Many tour companies will bring tourists there to watch the event. The shrine houses the tablets of the martyrs' names. Unfortunately, we're not allowed to peek inside. The ground is neatly kept. I enjoyed marveling at the buildings. At one point, there'll be the playing of Taiwan's national anthem. Out of respect, please remove your hats and maintain silence.

The national revolutionary martyrs shrine did not disappoint. It was immaculately kept and watching the soldiers during the changing of the guard was extremely impressive. Every aspect of the shrine itself was a 5 out of 5! I would highly recommend visiting to anyone who is in the Taipei area.

Worth to visit here to see the change of guards which takes place in exact every hour. The guard boys at the entrance do not move even a millimeter for an hour. At exact time, the guards march to the shrine. Everyone is walking by the same steps and movements of arms. They’re armed soldiers but somewhat friendly atmosphere. The reason is the administrative men who were accompanying the guards were let a boy who was marching behind them and playing exactly the same with guards with his toy sword. The last change starts from 4:40 since this place closes at 5pm.
There’s a little exhibition of those who lost their lives during the rebellion.
There’s no train station near by. Use bus.

Interesting war shrine to the Chinese victims of war. Very moving. Reminds me of our own wall with the names of our Vietnam War dead inscribed on it. And the military drill precision team here was itself in its own right.

The historic National Revolutionary Martyrs Shrine was built in 1969 to commemorate some 390,000 soldiers who perished in China's 20th century revolutionary wars, fighting against the Japanese Imperial Army and the Communist People's Liberation Army. This staggering toll of deaths is commemorated by the hourly changing of the military guard, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The military guard's precision drill is an exhibition any soldier could appreciate.. The shrine is on a slope, overlooking the Keelung River, not far from the iconic Grand Hotel. Visitors are welcome, entry is free. The only drawback is that transport is not very convenient.

It pays to be early.

People visit this shrine to see the changing of the guard. The Shrine commemorates those people sho died in China's 20th century wars. It is a solemn tribute. The changing of the guard occurs on the hour. It is a bit out of the way but the feng shui is good. By the way, there is usually a big crowd, so it pays sto get there early.

Come here to see an elaborte guard charging ceremony, these take place every hour and last a good 15 minutes. It is quite incredible how synchronized the guards are. We arrived 20 minutes before to explore the grounds, you can't actually access the main hall, but it is a nice place to wander and watch the ceremony.

The mood is solemn as we visited this shrine. It is a good reminder to invest in learning history to avoid the mistakes of repeating it. Every hour you will have opportunity to see changing of the guard. This is a phenomenal sight to see.
